Lost in the jungle… surrounded by wildlife and magic!

Welcome to the Secret Sanctuary

A magical jungle where laughing thrushes brush against your cheek and barking deer stop to be petted; an enchanting wilderness where you can tug a monkey’s tail or share a den with a mountain bear.

Or go in search of a rare mountain quail.

Or listen to a concert at dawn.

Or walk through a spider’s web as if it wasn’t there.

Or follow a blood trail through the jungle.

This idyllic world is a natural paradise. There is only one catch. Once you enter, you may never be able to go back.
